Patient 6 months post-surgery has lost over 80 lbs. Pre-surgery, patient had swollen, stiff and painful joints, was pre-diabetic, had asthma, and sleep apnea. Now post- surgery, her sugar levels are normal and no longer prescribed as pre-diabetic, she no longer has painful joints, sleep apnea and her Asthma has ceased. Because of her past sleep apnea, patient would never get a full night sleep and periodically would wake herself up grasping for air. Now, since the surgery, as the sleep apnea has resolved, she is able to sleep at nights.
